I have left a very extensive review on the discussion forums, but to summarize, we had an outstanding time on this ship. Embarkation in Miami was fast and efficient, the ports were wonderful, the entertainment was world class, and the food was wonderful. We had 11 in 3 balcony staterooms and the bathroom layout was a godsend. We were able to multi-task in the separate shower, sink and toilet areas where we would not have been able to with a more traditional design. The rooms also had a ton of storage, and we found places for all of our things even though we had 4 in our room.

The entertainment on Epic was top notch, and even in 7 days were unable to experience all of it. Same with the food. We never had a bad meal, and our three favorites were the Noodle Bar, Moderno and anything we got at O'Sheehans. It was our first time cruising freestyle and I'll never go back.

I highly suggest that readers don't get scared off by people who were intimidated (or confused) by the bathroom layout, or the lack of a coffee table in the room. Some people just have a need to complain. The Epic is different in a wonderful way, and our group from 9 years old to over 70 had an incredible experience on this ship.
